Straight From Paris, We’ve Added More Than 40 New Lafont Eyeglasses in Colors, Shapes and Patterns That Are a Feast for the Eyes!

While April in Paris is still three wintery months away, it already feels like springtime on the rue du Faubourg Urban Optiques 2010 Lafont Eyewear CollectionSt-Honoré inside Urban Optiques.

That’s because on Thursday, the first of several shipments of new Lafont eyeglasses and sunglasses arrived.

We’ve added more than 40 new frames from Lafont, drawn from the new Spring/Summer 2010 Lafont Paris Collection, as well as new, fresh designs from the Issy & LA and Lafont Reedition Collections. We also added several new  Lafont Pour les Infants frames for children, ‘Tweens and infants.

While the majority of our new Lafont suns will arrive closer to Spring, we did pick a couple of very chic Lafont sunglasses, just to remind everyone that winter doesn’t last forever.

Less than two days after adding the frames, we’ve already sold three of the new Lafont models, which is a great sign.

In celebration of the addition of the new Lafonts, we’re doing a buy one frame at regular price and get 1/2 off select Lafont frames from our previous collection.

This is a great opportunity to pick up two very different styles of Lafonts (one for work and maybe something bolder for play), so be sure to ask about the special when you stop in to browse the new collection.

Take a Peek Inside the Lafont-Paris Eyewear Boutique!

At Urban Optiques, we love everything about the Lafont Eyewear line.Lafont Eyewear Boutique Madeleine Paris

Their frame construction is impeccable, their eyeglass and sunglass designs run the gamut from conservative to wild (but always maintain that chic Parisian design aesthetic) and they are one of the few remaining European designer eyewear brands to remain independent.

Oh, did we mention they happen to have one of the coolest optical boutiques ever?

If you plan on making a trip to Paris, we highly recommend including a stop at the Lafont boutique on your itinerary along with the Louvre and, of course, shopping on  Place Vendôme.

But if a trip across the pond to France isn’t in your immediate future, check out this fantastic video that puts you right inside the original Lafont-Paris optical shop at 11 rue Vignon where it all began in 1923:
